I am new to artist daily and returning to an old love - art. After raising my children it is now time to concentrate on what the good Lord gave me - my love of art. I have forgotten a lot, and after a few accident I had forgotten even more- that's what working will do for you. The neurologist is actually excited that I am taking up my art again and said it will help reconnect both sides of the brain. Funny. I love to draw and sketch, paint (oil and acrylic). I am taking up new mediums - water, pastels, color pencils and have been teaching myself Tole painting. Sometimes it is frustrating - knowing that I use to do something and now I try and I don't. But I keep practicing and reading and taking classes and it is coming back. I will keep trying and won't give up because at sometime in the future - the good Lord willing I will be allowed to retire!!!! Until then I will paint and draw and enjoy it with all my heart.
I'm new to this site too. Art is the best medicine, in my opinion! Keep at it. There are so many great way to share and connect with people online.....so many more than when we were young!! Well, there was no ONLINE so yes, there are a lot more people online. haha
